Um, What’s This Secret Star Wars Game On Xbox Live Arcade?

Um, What’s This Secret Star Wars Game On Xbox Live Arcade?

For whatever reason, web designers Gifted Apollo went trawling on, and scooped up the image files for pretty much every Xbox Live Arcade game on the server. Even the ones that aren’t out yet and which we know nothing about.

Like Star Wars: First Assault.

With no announcement or official word from Lucasarts on the project, all we’ve got is the platform, the name and the “box” art. So let’s speculate!

Many are looking at the art and guessing that it’s some kind of team-based game, maybe even a dumping ground for the work done on Star Wars: Battlefront III.

I can’t think of anything better, or more likely, than that. Especially since plugging the art into Google Image Search gives you a bunch of Battlefront results.

  • Perhaps Lucusarts is testing to see how well a team based game similar to Battlefront would sell?
    If so, hopefully this will come to PC, although I doubt this will happen.

  • If First Assault will (presumably) be a downloadable game, hopefully it will be multiplayer-only in the vein of smaller games like BF 1943. It’s the best LucasArts can do for tormenting fans over the years with killed Battlefront projects and leaked material.

    • I agree. If it actually is a knock-around of Battlefront III, I certainly hope it’s somewhere close to the leaked videos from a couple years back.

      The game looked amazing – I’ll be keeping an eye on this.
